Installing the plugin can’t be more straightforward. After you purchase and download the plugin, you can simply sign into your WordPress site as an admin and navigate to Plugins > Add New. To install the plugin, click Upload Plugin to start the process. After installation, you will be directed to the License Activation page to enter your license key and activate the plugin.
The plugin has three report views (for Course, User, and Tin Can) and a Settings tab.
There are two optional controls on the Settings page:
- Capturing Tin Can Data: Keep the default setting Yes unless you are certain you won’t incorporate H5P, Storyline, Captivate, or iSpring content in any of your courses. If you select No (to not capture Tin Can data), the Tin Can Report tab will be removed and so will the Tin Can activity menu on the User Report. In addition, no Tin Can data will be reported on the Dashboard or Course Report. All other LearnDash reporting will still be available and functioning as expected.
- Disabling LearnDash Mark Complete button until the learner completes all Tin Can modules in the lesson/topic: Keep the default setting Yes will prevent users from skipping Tin Can modules. This is a global setting which can be overridden at the lesson or topic level.
- Protecting SCORM/Tin Can Modules from being viewed by users who are not signed to your site. You can set protection at a global level (as shown above) and also override the global setting at a lesson or topic level.
The Reset Tin Can Data button allows you to clear all existing Tin Can statements in the Tin Can Report. This feature would be helpful if you need to reset test data. Note all historical data will be removed; this action cannot be undone.
